Viewing Single Post From: Spoilers for the week of November 19th

While I'm not saying that last November's sweeps were stellar, there was a LOT more buildup. First, there was that explosive promo that they debuted at Day of Days (first weekend in November) that set the stage and gave a preview of what was to come. Then, there was the build-up to the pub shooting and the shooting itself, which was milked for drama and suspense. Then there was the griefsex, which was pre-Thanksgiving.

Not only that, but there was a ton of promotional investment on the part of the show and the network all along the way.

This year, when the first promo came out and it was a yawner, there was really no place to go. There's been no build-up and no real suspense, unless you count a little pathetic scalpel wielding and a two-piece baby garment as suspenseful drama (I don't).

Other than Wilson sex, there isn't much to write home about. Kristen's return and the spoilers about Eric's return are kind of blah so far. Nicole and Dannifer are just painful and bad. There's no sizzle, no pop, no spark.

Last year, we really weren't sure where things would go, and there were so many possibilities (even if the writers eventually chose all the worst ones.)
